Followed immediately by:

It’s not that this narrative is all wrong. But it appears to be significantly more true among Republicans than Democrats.

Nope. The narrative is all wrong. Please, please stop deceiving your readers. Please care enough about your subject to learn a little bit about it.

Via The Monkey Cage, which took out the trash on this "anti-incumbent narrative" months ago.


Just Stop It.
